The Friedman Brain Institute

Neuroscience Annual Retreat

The Friedman Brain Institute hosts a Neuroscience Retreat held in the spring of each year. Neuroscience is multidisciplinary by nature and, reflecting this, the scientists and physicians that contribute to the neurosciences at Mount Sinai hail from a variety of departments and campuses. The Retreat provides an opportunity for everyone in the Neuroscience community at Mount Sinai - faculty, fellows, students, researchers and clinicians - to meet and discuss their work in order to increase awareness of ongoing research and approaches, to foster new interactions, and to generate novel ideas.

The one-day Retreat comprises a keynote lecture, seminars given by selected students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty, a poster session with an awards ceremony for the best posters, and informal sessions that provide ample opportunities for collegial interaction and discussion.
